What is 24 Hours of Lemons?
The 24 Hours of Lemons is a 2-day 16 hour endurance race for $500 cars. While the spirit of the race is having fun with crappy cars at the end of the day we will be prepping a race car that will pushed to its limit on a track. That includes things like a full roll cage, racing seat, harness, head restraint and fire suppression. Our first race won't be until the spring of 2019, so this will be a long term project.

Since we won't be racing this year we are going to the Autobahn Country Club in Joliet on April 14th. It's The Yokohoma Joliet Prison Break. The plan is to meet at the Hackerspace at noon so we can catch the second half of the race and talk to some current teams and see how they manage to pull this off without going broke or dying.
